AATThis is the ninth year for this program that has fast become a community favorite!
Families/individuals/groups get a chance each year to adopt the New Canaan Nature Center’s sugar maple trees and enjoy the nature center from a unique and exciting perspective where they actually participate fully in this time honored tradition of New England. The New Canaan Nature Center taps nearly 50 trees throughout the property with some trees being robust enough to handle 2-3 taps each!
This program begins with the Adopt a Tree Kickoff Event on Feb. 11th. Syrup families/groups come for one time block to take part in choosing and tapping a tree for the season (takes approx. 45-60 minutes).
Participants then collect sap 1-3 times a week (depending on sap flow conditions) for the entire syrup season (typically 4-6 weeks) and take part in boil downs where REAL maple syrup is made right here at NCNC.
There will be three tap times on Saturday, February 11th at
10:00 A.M.
11:30 A.M.
1:00 P.M.
Register online (at registration, you will be asked to select one of these three time slots) today!
Can’t make it on the 11th but still want to participate? No worries! Give us a call at (203)-966-9577 x20 and we’ll be happy to set up a makeup date for you and your family/group to come select your tree.
